portion sizes

I don't understand portion control of vegetables - am I measuring precooking or post cooking? And what's a portion if I am only eating vegetables? I'm not concerned about salad dressing/oils added, just the amount of vegetables.

When I cook shredded cabbage, it weighs one thing pre-cooked, but weighs more after cooking. When I oven roast vegetables, there are multiple cups of slices, but afterward, they have shrunk by 1 or 2 cups.
